Mosquitoes are maddening enough for adults: think how much worse they torment babies. With their delicate skin and lack of mobility, babies are perfect prey for bloodsuckers.
Moreover, babies and children are typically bitten more by mosquitoes than by any other type of insect.
Here are proven tips on how to protect your baby from mosquitoes.
1. Keep your baby away from mosquitoes
Timing and location are essential. Your primary aim should always be to keep mosquitoes away from your baby as well as your baby away from mosquitoes.
That means keeping babies inside at peak biting times (usually dawn and dusk), and staying away from pools of still water where mosquitoes breed. Also flower gardens and unconvered foods attract skeeters.
